we are back now with more of "today" on a wednesday morning. it's the 20th of january 2010. we've got some nice people hanging out on the plaza this morning. on kind of a balmy morning, compared tohat we've had over the last several weeks. we thank them for hanging out. meanwhile, just a couple of meters away inside studio 1a, i'm matt lauer along with ann curry and natalie morales. and we've got al in rain-soaked southern california this morning. and boy, the people out there have had a nasty spell of weather. and al, you're in the midst of it right now. >> that's right. this is the constant family home. they have had literally ten tons of mud moved out of here. to give you a sense of this
9:01am
stuff, it is literally like quick sand. you put your foot in, and then trying to pull it out, i mean, it is like quicksand, and it keeps coming down. this area, la canada flintridge, almost 500 homes have been evacuated. yesterday we had a tornado in huntington beach. we've got this heavy rain coming. we're looking for about one to two inches of rain here, maybe even four inches in the foothills. some areas may even pick up six inches. this is not the worst of it. the worst of it comes tomorrow with another bigger storm. so, it is a real mess. they have done all this to try to save their home. they're afraid they're not. look at what they're up against. you can see some of the mud slide activity over the last 24 hours. it's a mess. and this is what they're trying to save. they're trying to save their home here, but they're really afraid that with what's coming tomorrow and as mud comes down here, it may literally knock the home off its foundation. and this story's being repeated over and over again throughout this area, guys. >> all right, al, thanks very
9:02am
much. we'll get back out to you in a little while. we'll check in for your local forecast. and we've got a lot of other things ahead. also in the news this morning, as we've been reporting, a 6.1 earthquake, an aftershock, actually, hit around 6:00 a.m. eastern time this morning in haiti, since last week's earthquake. it sent people screaming into the streets. there are still miraculous stories of survival, but will this new aftershock, a 6.1, hinder the desperate efforts and the search for more survivors? remarkable how many people are still being pulled out alive. we're going to get the latest on this from lester holt, who is in port-au-prince. >> a lot of heroics taking place there in haiti these days. >> absolutely. definitely. plus, on "today's money 911," help for your money emergencies. our expert panel is going to take on everything from dealing with post-divorce finances, building your own and understanding your credit rating and how to save in these tight times. a lot to get to. ms. curry, you have the top headlines. >> that's right. first, the aftershock in
9:03am
haiti. more than a week after haiti's devastating earthquake, a powerful aftershock this morning, magnitude 6.1, sent people running into the streets and sent rubble falling from already damaged buildings. this after more survivors were pulled from the rubble last night. nbc's lester holt is in port-au-prince this morning again for us. lester, good morning. >> reporter: ann, good morning. i keep thinking, how much more can these people take? they've already been living outside, many because they're homeless, some because they're fearful of the frequent aftershocks, but this was the biggest we felt so far, and there were screams in the fields around us where people have been living. they don't have a lot of options except those who have relatives outside the area and then the government is encouraging them to move away, if they can. all this, of course, threatens to perhaps weaken buildings that are already precariously standing after the quake last week. the good news is, urban search-and-rescue teams continue to make progress here. it keeps happening, survivors beating the odds. >> go 90 degrees the opposite
9:04am
way! >> reporter: new york and virginia rescuers dig six hours to find a boy and girl, tiki and sabrina, alive. [ cheers and applause ] pulled from beneath what had been a three-story house. >> they're all right. they're just thirsty and need food. that's about it. >> reporter: it wasn't the only thing people here had to celebrate on tuesday. the arrival of u.s. marines choppering into the capital was met with cheers. they also air-lifted supplies from the "uss battan" to a coastal community that until now had seen little, if any, aid. the u.n. security council voted to add an additional 3,500 u.n. troops to help secure food distribution in an increasingly volatile country. where people scavenge what they can. but it's not just the hungry getting anxious. relief groups also feeling frustrated, unable to get their supplies here quickly enough. >> you know, haiti wasn't built to accommodate the capacity of
9:05am
incoming people and equipment and materials that are coming into it right now. >> reporter: as the plight of the living grows, there have been wildly varying estimates, as high as 200,000, of the number of dead. the u.s. says a substantial number of americans remain unaccounted for. here's why we'll never know exactly how many people died in the earthquake. we've already told you about those open pits, mass graves, where people are systematically being buried without being identified. then there's roads like this outside of town. it's a garbage dump, and we found interspersed in the garbage and concrete debris, human bodies, people who will never be identified. we'll never know what their nationalities are, either. today the u.s. air force is expected to evacuate hundreds of american citizens who have been anxiously waiting for a chance to flee this wounded country. and this morning, most of the 53 haitian orphans who were flown to pennsylvania tuesday are
9:06am
already out of the hospital, soon to be united with their new adoptive parents. the u.n. says it will get food to five times as many people this week as it did last week. and ann, we should note with regard to that field, that dumping ground of bodies, we traveled a short distance away, found a crew that had been digging mass graves. we asked them to please go cover those bodies up. they left immediately to do that. >> all right, lester. lester holt, thank you so much for your reporting on this important story this morning. a political stunner in massachusetts, where republican scott brown has won the senate seat held for almost 47 years by democrat ted kennedy. brown's win takes away the democrats' filibuster supermajority in the senate and could have a major impact on health care reform. brown defeated his democratic opponent 52% to 47%. this morning, the obama administration's choice to lead the transportation security administration withdrew his nomination. confirmation of earl suthers had been blocked by arizona senator
9:07am
jim demint who worried that he would allow tsa employees to join a labor union. today, congress is holding hearings on the christmas day attempted plane bombing and intelligence failures leading up to it. top fbi and homeland security officials are among those who will be testifying today. there is a major recall this morning of strollers and another one involving cribs. 1.5 million graco strollers have been recalled. the passage, alano and spree models. officials say that the hinges on the strollers' canopies can seriously injure children's fingers, and cribs are recalled for parts that can detach and strangle a baby. for more information, go to todayshow.com. back to you, matt. >> that stroller story is scary. >> scary. >> it is. okay, let's go to soggy los angeles for a check of the weather from al. >> hey, thanks a lot, guys. in la canada flintridge, and this home still trying to battle
9:08am
the elements, stave off a mud slide that would knock it off its foundation. and let's take a look, see what's causing all of this. we've got storms stacked up out in the pacific, and you can see that rain coming in now. we've got one area over southern california, but look at this, stretching from northern california and the pacific northwest all the way down. this big slug of moisture getting ready to come on in here. rainfall with this thing, we're talking about two to three inches locally. could be up to five inches. two feet of snow in the sierras, the siskiyous and wasatch mountain range. the storm that came in yesterday is now triggering strong storms, a risk of heavy thunderstorms in the gulf coast, lower mississippi river valley. tornadoes, heavy thunderstorms, rainfall amounts two to four inches, some areas picking up five inches of rain. and then we've got back here in california, tomorrow's storm may dump anywhere from eight to ten inches of rain on top of what
9:09am
